The Paper Moon Shiners
September 14, 2014

The Paper Moon Shiners are Elena Antinelli on vocals and Frank Meyer on vocals, guitar, dobro, ukulele, and the invisible kazoo.  They specialize in vintage American music from the Victrola era of the 20’s and 30’s and sprinkle in original compositions written in the vintage spirit.  Their old timey sensibility and vaudeville undertones create an infectiously entertaining evening with cracker blues, vintage jazz, swing, ragtime, Americana roots, and folk.  The Paper Moon Shiners breathe life back into the songs of days gone by.  Elena fronts the band with her shoo-fly pie syrupy vibratos and turpentine tinged belly growls.  Frank is the string man in the band and his fingers pull thumpin' notes from the stand-up bass, delicate ripples from his ukulele, and soothing rhythms from the guitar.  Mix all that with deep vocal tones that resonate like shifts in tectonic plates and you'll feel the earth move beneath your feet.  Frank co-founded the Mannish Boys with harmonica legend Gary Primich, played bass with B.B. King, and has made 3 all original CD's.  The Paper Moon Shiners have played the Kerrville Folk Festival and have showcased at the Southwest Regional Folk Alliance.  They recently released their first CD.
